Painting


Bonnie inspires me all the time. Her creativity and amazing camera work give me ideas all the time, I just rarely act on them. In a similar vein of dormant artistry, I realized I haven't gotten out my art stuff since I moved to Denver.

Four years ago.
No bueno.

But, in the immortal words of (Rogers & Hammerstein) the King of Siam:
Now is always best time!


One of my favorite things to do is paint from photographs.
I don't really consider myself an artist in the strictest sense of the word.
I am more of a copyist.
On the other hand, copying is an art unto itself.

Oh, and if anyone has seen my tiny paintbrush, let me know.
I could really have used it...


Without further ado, I present to you Fray Luis de Leon.

I love it Jill !!! You are TOTALLY an artist ... and I can't wait 'til one of your works of art can hang in my home !!

PS ... you really do have talent. I hope you pick up your brush again before another four years goes by ! you are right, that is no bueno !!
